As part of the 2012 capital works program, the City of Williams Lake will be replacing the sidewalk on Oliver Street in front of Gardner Park, between Fourth and Fifth avenues.

The area to be replaced is approximately 100 metres and is currently constructed of asphalt. The new sidewalk will be concrete and will include improved street lighting, the city says.

The works will begin the week of May 14 and will take approximately three weeks to complete. BC Hydro will remove five hydro poles, beginning May 14. Beginning the following week, new lighting that will include the installation of drip irrigation for the city’s hanging baskets will be installed.

The majority of this work will be performed in the evening after 6 p.m, mitigating disruption to nearby businesses. Once the lighting has been installed, the final phase of the project will be the installation of the new concrete sidewalk.

The city says it apologizes for any inconvenience that may occur as a result of this project. For further information contact the municipal services department at 250-392-1783.
